Thanks for posting that. Keep us posted on how the work. I'm seriously thinking of going with Vredestein when the time comes. Your experience will be a great help.

queefchief, which LEDs did you use? Most LED headlights have tremendous glare and terrible beam pattern. Even the good ones I have require regular polishing of the headlight housing to prevent glare.

Welcome queefchief to IC. If you bought the citrus then please enter it in the Citrus Registry here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...yXY/edit#gid=0

Make sure car isn't already in the registry. If so then just edit the details and ownership.

Just plain old LED headlights. Everyone around here drives with brights on or LEDs that glare god awful so I decided to do the same!

And no citrus for me, as I do want badly. I found a silver one!

Ima pack out. Cycling batteries. All are taking 6500 plus mah. 28 to 30 mOhm resistance. Will the resistance get better if I keep cycling?

I picked my first Insight up last night and have already put about 80 miles on it! 45 more this evening.

Great little car. Need to charge the AC a bit and check tire inflation, but other than that, wow it's fun and extremely minimal inside. I love it!

Most folks seem to feel that anything over 3 cycles is a waste of battery life. Eli of Bumblebee set that standard early on. Stick recycling is somewhat controversial of course.
